Market for maintenance maintained

2014 has proved to be a busy year in the education sector for property maintenance contractors Novus Property Solutions

Posted by Rebecca Paddick | December 15, 2014 | People, policy, politics, money

Novus Property Solutions has completed more than £15.5 million of work in schools and universities so far this year, with its 30 regional offices – including those in Staffordshire, Bristol and Warwickshire – completing projects in a variety of educational establishments. The summer holidays were particularly busy.  

Operatives from Novus’ Staffordshire office constructed an extension and completed refurbishment work at Picknalls First School in Uttoxeter and also completed a refurbishment at Biddulph High School in Knypersley. The Bristol office handled a £1 million refurbishment of student accommodation for UPP at Reading University, while student accommodation was also worked on for Bristol University. Novus’s Bristol office also carried out redecoration work for the University of Wales.

In Warwickshire, meanwhile, the Novus team built a new extension for Tysoe C of E Primary School, valued at about £220,000.

Mick Triner, Novus’ head of maintenance, said: “With the summer holidays comes a higher demand for maintenance work in schools and universities as facilities managers take the opportunity to complete work during the shutdown.

“Our highly experienced operations managers plan work far in advance to overcome logistical challenges and ensure the smooth delivery of work. Yet again this year our teams delivered excellent results and the work has ensured Novus maintains a strong position in the marketplace.”
